New Delhi: With the commissioning of a unit of 660 MW at Tanda Super Thermal Power Station in Uttar Pradesh and another unit of 660 MW at Khargone Super Thermal Power Station in Madhya Pradesh, the total installed capacity of NTPC and NTPC group has gone up to 48,645 MW and 57,106 MW respectively.
Khargone Super Thermal Power Station is India's first ultra-supercritical plant that operates at an efficiency of 41.5 percent. The high efficiency will result in less coal consumption for generating same amount of electricity resulting in the reduction of 3.3 percent Carbon dioxide emissions.
NTPC Ltd currently operates 54 power stations (23 coal, 7 combined cycle gas/liquid fuel, 2 hydro, 1 wind and 11 solar projects) and has 10 coal and 1 gas station, owned by joint ventures or subsidiaries, taking the capacity to 57,106 MW. Last month, NTPC signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Himachal Pradesh state government to set up two hydro projects in the state. Under the MoU, two hydro-power stations of a total capacity of 520 MW will be set up in the state. NTPC aims to achieve total installed capacity of 130 GW by 2032.
